Food served throughout the day Eating at the Godolphin Arms is a relaxed and informal affair and we offer an all-day menu to be enjoyed whatever the occasion or mood. Our food philosophy is simple; we want to provide freshly cooked food that tastes delicious, is beautifully presented and showcases the quality and seasonality of local Cornish produce. From hearty Cornish breakfasts to relaxed lunches and intimate dinners, our menu is inspired by living and working by the sea and produce grown and farmed locally. Fresh daily bakes of the most delicious desserts and cakes are also offered up, to be enjoyed alongside the perfect cappuccino or latte. Where to eat? Lots of natural, light bathed and restful spaces - all with far-reaching views out over Mount's Bay and St Michael's Mount. Sit in the new glass and zinc extension, with doors that open out for al fresco dining during the summer months. Celebrate with family or friends around the intimate Captain's Table that seats 9 or alternatively, relax in our upper deck that has easy sofas, comfy chairs and a logburner. On the lower deck, walk straight in off the beach to the colourful and chilled-out beach bar and dining area. Outside, the beach terrace remains a place to linger, absorb the astonishing views and simply watch the world go by.

Elegant Dining in an Ancient Cornish Town

This was certainly an unexpected find. I arrived late on a Saturday afternoon. I was starving after a significant delayed ferry from Roscoff. The serving staff was excellent (thank you, Angus), accommodating, and tolerant of my struggle with the Cornish accents. The restaurant was... read more

We had just walked from St Michael Mount across the causeway and found the steps leading to the terrace of the Godolphin Arms. We had a lovely meal there and the views were just stunning. We had a sharing fish platter which was excellent. We paid a reasonable price for the meal considering that we thought the prices would be... More

So the good-water brought to your table without being asked. The staff, friendly and helpful. The views to die for. The average - the food is OK, the beer extortionately priced, the decor is too canteen like. A shame when they have the most enviable site overlooking St Michaels Mount. The staff seem permenently harassed, there are not enough of... More

The restaurant has a panoramicic view of St Michael's Mount worth visiting for that alone. We visited at the end of a gloriously sunny day, the air was clear and it was just magical to watch the day fade, the lights come on throughout the island. A good menu choice but bar service and table service were under pressure which... More

The new owners have made a fantastic job of refurbishing what was a tired old building. The new décor is lovely and the view is still stupendous. Very nice wine list, good waiting staff, nice comfortable chairs, high class cutlery and napkins, in fact everything set for a wonderful experience. Until you come to the food..... How hard can it...

Amazing views over the bay and St Michaels Mount. Good food and good service. Went on a Sunday outside of season but can imagine during peak season this place is heaving so would Recommend booking and asking for a window seat would definitely return

Having been here now almost every month for the last 6, we where looking forward to yet more great food, service and views. All was still good with a regulary changing menu but the wait for food was much more and not quite to standard. But without asking they clearly realised this and offered some complimentary drink which was appreciated.... More
